It's hard to get a decent couch for that price, unless it's been gently used. If you're stuck with a budget, your best bet would be to buy an Ektorp from Ikea. Ikea can ship to the island if you order online.

I wouldn't buy from the Brick as they're pretty shady and their stuff is no better than stuff you would buy on Amazon or Aliexpress.

My go-to furniture store is Urban Barn and there's one located in Victoria. They always have sales during Boxing Week.

That leaves u $75 for gloves
When all gloves are 25% off and u can stack a list coupon and no tax.

If you try a bit harder you can probably do the whole thing for under $250
is the standalone atmosphere store in kits doing the no tax event as well?? and do they accept team assist coupons/ sportchek gift cards?

Everything I was remotely interested in was sold out by the time I he check out :/

Both soundbars I was looking at were only slightly discounted though so may just wait and pay regular price :/

are there any ok sound bars for $100 or are they all junk? not an audio whore really just need something that can play good voice audio for movies and something that may enhance footsteps in video gaming and stream music. i read anything under $200 is basically equivalent to a TV speaker.

Purchased an 8.1 samsung curved sound bar with subwoofer today for $698 + tax with 5 yr warranty at Visions, it's a pretty good deal imo. Regular price was $999, seems like it's the same sale they had for Black Friday.

I can't bring myself to buy Samsung products. Just don't like them as a company or else I would have had a sound bar long ago lol

Curved one had great specs, tell us how it is

Did anyone go out? I was in downtown during the morning hours and it didn't seem too busy, but maybe it picked up as the day went by.

Visions has/had a Polk soundbar (regular $200+) refurbished for $98 still came with a 1yr warranty iirc

looks like they've sold out though :/


for double that price you can get this Yamaha with built in woofers

Home Audio | Visions Electronics

I went to Sport Check today and they had a "min 20% off" on almost everything but the actual discount price isn't on the tag. People lined up at the cashiers just to check the discount.

Yeah, we looked all over today and everything we liked was at least $1200.

Sears has an all-leather sofa for $800 (60% off) that wasn't bad, but the fiancÚ hates the colour, so no dice.

I just don't want to spend a lot because we have 2 cats and one of them tends to destroy furniture. I don't really want to drop $1k+ to have it wrecked. I can live with $500.

I bought 36 AAA batteries for $10 from amazon

Was honestly pretty tempted to buy the $390 1tb Xbox bundle
Is xb1 that bad that they're consistently having these crazy good deals?

Still holding out for a good ps4 bundle next year
All their bundles fucking suck
Battlefront sucks, nobody wants the uncharted bundle
I mean if you're gonna fucking rebundle old ass games at least make the goddamn thing 1TB
I wanna find the fuckface who thought it was a great idea to recycle ps3 games to ps4 and punch their mom in her fucking uterus with a dremel.
Lazy, unimaginative fucks.
